Members of the Missouri S&T Amateur Radio Club, callsign W0EEE, are preparing to celebrate the club’s 100th anniversary in 2023.
As a part of its preparations, current club members hope to connect with former members to update alumni contact information — even alumni who are no longer licensed — and collect stories from alumni about their times as active members. They also hope to identify anyone interested in helping to organize the anniversary celebration. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
WOEEE dates back as far as 1923 and is one of the oldest university-associated amateur radio clubs in the United States. The club has occupied various locations on campus since its inception, including the Jackling Gym, the Rolla Building, the Buehler Building and Emerson Hall, where the organization’s “shack” currently resides in Room G-29/30.
The club provides a space for members to experiment with equipment, communicate with other enthusiasts and provide a public service. For more information about amateur radio, visit the club’s website at w0eee.mst.edu or the national association’s site at arrl.org.
